Late Sunday, July 10th, Big Indian's Ruby Red (Ruby) began delivery of her first litter. The pups started coming at 10:00 p.m. We had taken her to the vet for x-rays so we would have an idea of how many to expect. The results gave a clear indication for 8 puppies with room for another to be hidden in there somewhere. Here's a play by play of the longer than expected whelping:
10:00 p.m.- Black female
10:45 p.m.- Black male
11:30 p.m.- Yellow male
11:36 p.m.- Black male
11:58 p.m.- Black female
12:50 p.m.- Black female
1:13 a.m.- Black male
1:53 a.m.- Yellow female
At this point, I was beginning to settle in on the couch looking to rest a little. But Ruby began to get still and breathe heavy. Then...
2:40 a.m.- Yellow male; A surprise pup! Surely that must be the last one. And then...
2:49 a.m.- Black female; Wow. But wait...
3:11 a.m.- Yellow female. After this final puppy Ruby settled in and rested, the end of a healthy and abundant litter. 11 healthy labs.
